In California, car buyers do seem to like the Ford Fusion Hybrid and Eneri Plug-in Hybrid.
Consumer Reports seems to be taking on a different tactic than it did a few months ago on fuel economy. The publication took Ford and the US Environmental Protection Agency to task for overstating mileage ratings on the C-Max and Fusion hybrids in late 2012. Then, earlier this year, CR said automakers were not delivering the promised fuel economy claims on vehicles with small turbo engines. Now the emphasis seems to be on getting drivers to change their driving habits.
A lot happened at this year's North American International Auto Show in Detroit. One way to sum it up: there will be stunningly beautiful hybrids coming our way. Detroit always has been the place for automakers to show off their latest and greatest, and now that includes the latest generation of hybrid and electric vehicles. Here are our favorites:
